Show Description

For fast-and-light backcountry missions for 3-people, the Spark 2.0 has greater fly coverage and the ability for ultralight fly-and-footprint setup when you don't need a full shelter. It's roomy interior gives you plenty of room to hang out, read, escape bugs and, of course, sleep soundly.

  • Polyester ripstop fly is UV-resistant and stretches less than nylon when wet.
  • Lightweight nylon and mesh canopy balance weather protection and ventilation.
  • Fully seam taped.
  • DriBase™ waterproof floor offers durable water protection throughout the lifetime of the tent.
  • Peaked vents in the fly.
  • Featherlight DAC NSL poles have pressfit connectors and a high strength-to-weight ratio.
  • Hubbed pole design creates steep walls for greater internal volume.
  • Reflective zipper pulls and stake-out cords.
  • 2 interior mesh pockets.
  • Includes 8 DAC aluminum J stakes, guylines and stuff sack.
  • Optional footprint available for floor protection or an ultralight configuration (sold separately).
